I don't know if I can provide you with a lot of information about Margaret
but I do have a connection there. Tell me what type of info you want and
we'll see if I have it.
I am related to Israel and Urzilla Olinghouse. My line is from their
son, John Largent Olinghouse and Anna Menneke. Israel and Urzilla would
be my gr gr r gr grandparents. I do have Israel and Urzilla's family
info. Also Urzilla's parents. If you don't have that let me know and I
will find it.
However, John and Anna Olinghouse lived in Clinton Co, IA. You might
find some help posting on their site. There are some following the
Olinghouse and Menneke line there who might have some info about James
and Lydia. Good luck and let me know if I can help with any of the

I'm searching for information on the FRANK MARION WATSON family. All
other above names are in relation to this one. I believe Franks father's
name to have been COLUMBUS WATSON. Unsure however of his mothers name.
Frank was born in Indiana in 1854, county unknown, came to Iowa year
unknown. He shows up in the 1870 census in Jackson county. He married
JENNIE ROBERTS January 12, 1887 in Maquoketa where they raised a family
of 11 children. Jennie's parents were STEPHEN ROBERTS and REBECCA GREEN.
Jennie was born in Andrew, Iowa September 29, 1863 and died in Iowa
City, Iowa February 2, 1957. Frank died June 27, 1931 in Davenport,
Iowa. They are both buried in Sacred Heart, Maquoketa. Children of this

believe COOPER and MOHR to be from Maquoketa.
I didn't want this to be too long so will send out the information on
the other children tomorrow. Any help with these names would be greatly
appreciated. Thank you.
Dick: Thank you for the information about my surnames in the 1880
census. The James and Mary DUNN in Monmouth are the right family. And
Thomas and Sophia WOOD in South Fork are also right. None of the
ANDERSONS mentioned sound right, but I'll keep them in mind just in
case. Thank you again for the help.
Urzilla Largent married Israel Olinghouse. Her brother, James Tanner
Largent married Lydia Ives. James Largent lived in Jackson Co. Iowa, in or
near Sabula about 1852 until some time after the 1860 census and before
1865. James bought land from William and Emily Basham in 1857, an acre of
land. James and Lydia are the parents of Lydia, who married Albert
Anderson, my great grandfather. I am interested in anything of this line. .

Families from Jackson co IA: James and
Mary BURK DUNN after 1857
David and Phebe CATHCART SHAY after 1840
James and Susan ? CATHCART WESTBROOK after 1840
Joseph and Sarah JUKES ANDERSON after 1840
Thomas and Sophie JUKES WOOD after 1840.
Looking for any new info about any of these families and their
descedants. Will share.
My g-grandmother was Jennie ROBERTS. Her mother was Rebecca GREEN, Her
father, Stephen Albert ROBERTS or Albert Stephen ROBERTS. Rebecca's
birthplace as given in the 1915 census is Ohio. They were living in
Andrew, Jackson county Iowa in 1863 when my g-grandmother was born. I
can't find them anywhere in Andrew, Cascade, or Maquoketa Iowa. Would
someone have my gg-grandma in their GREEN family? I have no birth or
death dates for her. Thank you.
Here's a hint that is very helpful: Put the surnames you are researching in
the subject line, in all caps. Gets people's immediate attention, before
they even open the mail. More likely to open it and read it if they've seen
those names before somewhere.
